British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has announced he will play Golden 1 Center this summer as part of a national tour.
The 48-date North American tour will stop in Sacramento on Aug. 1. Other stops include Oakland on Aug. 2 and Las Vegas on Aug. 4.
Sheeran, whose breakout song was 2014’s “Thinking Out Loud,” has been promoting the tour and his new album, “Divide,” which uses the arithmetic symbol rather than spelling out the word. He appeared this week on the “Today” show and Howard Stern’s Sirus XM radio show.
Pre-sale tickets will be available through Ticketmaster Verified Fan, a new product from Ticketmaster to help artists combat bots and get tickets into the hands of fans who intend to go to the event. The pre-sales begin 10 a.m. Monday and run through 10 a.m. March 16.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. March 17.
